Read Job 1,2 & 42
- James says that the prophets who were patient were considered blessed. How do you see this at work in Job’s life?
- What encourages or challenges you through Job’s story?
I cannot imagine living through Job’s story. If you read the whole book, he is surrounded by friends who speak poorly of him, his faith, and his actions. He doesn’t understand God or what is happening and has a lot of feelings in the midst (as I would). Perhaps in your life right now, there is a situation that you don’t understand and has brought genuine suffering.
- How can you be patient right now? How does this work out in practical ways in your life?
